This is a fast and easy dessert! Everyone thinks I spent all day putting it together. Little do they know how easy it is and of course I will never tell... ;) I love doing this with fresh apples from the orchards. You can use any kind of fruit you want and can mix them to get great tasting flavors. My momma taught me how to cook Southern style, being from the hills of Kentucky. I love cooking and even more, love watching my family eat it all up. I hope y'all enjoy this one!

What a great, basic fruit crisp recipe. In the Test Kitchen, we used a 16 oz bag of frozen berries and it turned out delicious. The topping is buttery. There's a slight cinnamon flavor but that's not overpowering. It will work with any type of fruit combination you decide to use. A great recipe for a beginning baker. It's perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream but just as yummy on its own. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Fruit Crisp

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix crumb topping ingredients together until crumbly and holds shape when pressed together with fingers; set mixture aside.
  2. Mix your fruit and all fruit filling ingredients (any kind you want, if using a fruit with a rind make sure you peel it first apples, peaches, plums, etc.).
  3. For individual desserts (4 to 6 depending on size) spray the bottom of small oven-safe dishes with non-stick cooking spray. May also be made as a single larger one (like a 2-quart baking dish).
  4. Add fruit to the bottom of pans/dishes till about 3/4 full. Crumble topping over top of the fruit.
  5. Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes until the top is golden brown and fruit is soft when pricked with a fork and well jelled together.
